Media General Presents Annual Television Station Journalism Awards

Media General, Inc. (NYSE: MEG), a local broadcast television and digital media company, today presented its annual D. Tennant Bryan journalism awards, which recognized outstanding journalism at the company’s television stations during the 2013 calendar year. The awards are named in honor of Media General’s founder and have been presented annually since 2001.

“I congratulate all the winners, whose tenacity and dedication make us very proud,” said George L. Mahoney, president and chief executive officer. “This excellent work exemplifies Media General’s commitment to quality, local journalism and strong investigative reporting, distinguishing our stations in their markets. Our news teams never hesitate to go after the tough stories, and they tell them with passion and poignancy. The winning journalists touched lives and spotlighted issues that matter to their communities, building our audience, ratings and shareholder value.”

“We are delighted to recognize our journalists and stations with the D. Tennant Bryan awards for excellence in journalism,” said Donna M. Reed, vice president-content, for Media General. “The winning entries demonstrate our commitment to stories that make a difference to our viewers.”

Nominated stories in six categories were judged by Media General news directors. News directors in large markets judged entries from small markets. Conversely, news directors in small markets judged entries from large market stations. The awards presented today were for stories submitted during 2013 and next year will encompass all of the company’s 31 stations.

All of the winning stories are available for viewing via YouTube.
